Cosmic Sin is one of the most interesting movies you will see this week. Directed by Wes Ball, the movie stars Michael Caine, Whoopi Goldberg, and Dabney Coleman as the four-legged creature that wants to be the most powerful creature in the universe. In 25 24, four years after humans first began to colonize the outer solar system, retired Gen. James Ford is called back to duty after an alien vessel attacks military personnel on a remote planet. The impending attack quickly escalates to a worldwide war when Ford and some special forces attempt to stop the impending attack before it is too late. Cosmic Sin is a fun movie that is worth your time!
The film opens with a series of flashbacks that further detail the background of our main hero, Michael Caine. It is here where we learn that he was actually the son of a wealthy man who didn't understand why his biological father, John Wayne, had died in an airplane crash. As a result, Michael took over the family business and built a fortune for his father's name, but this wealth also created a massive chip on his shoulder. When he learns that his biological father was actually an alien, Michael sets out to find out what really happened to him and what killed his father.
The first quarter of the film is great and contains many entertaining sequences. Michael Caine plays the character of Cosmo, a robot who works for the company called "Cyberdyne Systems", but he soon discovers that his personality has been changed so much that he is unrecognizable. He now has a glowing red head, robotic arms, and strong claw hands. This is the beginning of Michael's transformation, but he also discovers that he can turn his head the way he wants to and no one except him can tell the difference.
The plot of the movie centers around Michael's quest to discover why his father was murdered. Along the way, he encounters a series of evil aliens and Benders who want to use his blood for immortality. I found that the acting was a little thin when it came to the acting for this movie, but it was still entertaining. Michael Caine does a good job of playing the role of Cosmo, but the writing was pedestrian and it felt like the movie needed to pick up some pace to give it more realism.
Cosmic Sin seems to follow a similar formulaic structure to many of James Patterson's other movies. There are several series of eerie clues leading the hero on his quest and even when things do not go as planned, the movie is full of twists and turns that keep the audience guessing. I also liked that director Mike De Luca had included some music from bands such as Queen, who often create dark, moody music for their movies. The movie had a mysterious quality that kept me interested.
Cosmic Sin is a movie that you should definitely check out if you like science fiction with a little bit of an edge. Although the film has some minor flaws, it is well worth your time. If you enjoy watching movies about aliens and stuff, you will love this one. If you have never seen a movie about this type of stuff before, I recommend that you check it out. If you are a fan of De Luca's work then this is a must see movie.
